Founded in 1980, The Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence is a private, non-profit, tax-exempt organization that is governed by a Board of Directors. ACADV provides technical assistance and training to domestic violence programs and other allies throughout the State of Arkansas. It is our mission to conduct comprehensive outreach to the ACADV member programs and coordinate public awareness efforts throughout the state. ACADV is involved in numerous projects and collaborative efforts that focus on developing policies and training to improve awareness of, and responses to, victims of domestic violence. These efforts promote recognition of domestic violence, and enhance systemic responses to victims and their families throughout Arkansas.
